On the way from Phonsavan to Luang Prabang is a main crossroad connecting track from Vientiane to Luang Prabang. We stopped there for a meal. During my 3 mates were ordering foods for us, I succeeded to make a short walk through the village of this main passing by point and took few Photos. Being spotted by 3 Girls who were walking on a side of the road I focused their attention and received smiles with friendly hand’s waving.
